08 Ephemera

The woods were crackling, burning / When rockets did ascend /A growing constellation / Exploding in the end...But one ship kept ascending / We shouted at the sight / It journeyed cross millennium / And touched down just last night...

"Ephemera" serves as the revelation in the cyborg chronicle. It is here that we come to understand his mission and its outcome. With the world coming to a fiery end, some launch themselves in rockets in an attempt to escape the dying planet while those who remain watch in despair as the rockets explode mid-air. Only one ship, piloted by the imperiled cyborg manages to break through the atmosphere, then the time-space barrier. 

How do you define savior? Where do you look for salvation?

Ephemera

Cherish the world

 

Cherish the world that’s laid before you

Live for the night and seize the day

Savor the moments they adore you

For a year or so till you’re just another name

Just another name

 

I’m lagging behind my generation

Hoping I’ll win another chance

To capture their hearts and their salvation

With a kiss from you 

And this seven-minute dance

Seven-minute dance

 

But the lives we’ve built

Like Damocles in peril

Bliss hangs over us

And if it falls

Would we be 

More than just 

Ephemera?

 

Ephemera

 

Our eyes looked up to heaven

As egrets burst in flight

The seventh seal was broken

The kerosene alight

 

The woods were crackling, burning

When rockets did ascend

A growing constellation

Exploding in the end

 

We cried at all we’d witnessed

Though we’d been left behind

The vestiges of charity

The dregs of humankind

 

But one ship kept ascending

We shouted at the sight

It journeyed cross millennium

And touched down just last night

 

But by the time we’d found it

The pilot barely wake

Through slow belabored breathing

He prayed his soul we take

We raised him up to heaven

And offered him to God

Who finally broke Her silence

Before She broke the rod

 

Cherish the world
